Sharon Whitson PSY-222-C01 Chap. #4 1. At birth most neurons in an infant’s brain have few connections to other neurons and they communicate by chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. Infants are born with 100 to 200 billion neurons as they grow they move to different places in the brain where they all have different jobs to do for the infant so it can speak, crawl, walk, cry and many more. They are important for infant’s future development because without them the child could have disabilities in any areas. 2. A newborn, can see, hear, feel, taste, and smell as soon as they are born. Some of the newborn's five senses need time to fully mature. Taste buds aren't mature at birth, the baby can tell sweet from sour. The baby can hear, but can’t tell what direction the noise is coming from until he gets older. Loud, sharp noises often upset babies, and a soft, rhythmic sound helps them calm down. Chap. #5
